Borderlands 3 Has Been Certified For PS5 And Xbox Series X Ahead Of Launch

The loot-shooter RPG will come to both next-gen consoles on day one with enhancements.


Borderlands 3 is coming to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 at launch, and the next-gen versions of the game have now reached a major milestone. The official Borderlands Twitter account has announced that the game has been certified for release on both systems--meaning, essentially, that it has gone gold.

Owners of the game on PS4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade for free within the same console family. Because of this, the game won't come bundled with DLC by default--you'll need to buy that separately.

These versions of the game will run at 4K/60fps, and support four-player split-screen multiplayer. There's a second season pass coming to the game, too, so there will be plenty of content updates to keep you playing.

Gearbox had previously announced Borderlands 3 as a launch game for both next-gen systems, but in 2020, nothing is ever really set in stone--so it's good to have this confirmed. Of course, a game can still go gold and then get delayed, as has been the case for Cyberpunk 2077, but it seems unlikely here.

The Xbox Series X is available from November 10, while the PS5 begins its global rollout on November 12. Borderlands 3 will be available on both systems from day one.

Borderlands 3 scored an 8/10 in GameSpot's review.
